My mother… Oh yes, I had a mother. Wonderful woman. Truly evil person. She had a saying. “Babe,” she used to say - she called me Babe. “Babe,” she used to say. “Treat every hour as though it’s your last.”

Son is a diligent menial worker on the planet Calross. He has no idea who his father is. He lives with his mother by the Federation Factory where he works. He has two friends: a computer geek called Vann and a manual worker called Olag Gan. Son is having a secret relationship with Vel, Gan’s woman. She tells him that she is able to channel her psychic gift through a broken piece of necklace that she stole from an ancient burial site on one of the outer worlds.

Holding the broken necklace, Son has a vision that he will achieve greatness. When it comes true, he decides to find its missing parts hiring a grizzled old pilot called Bayban the Butcher to help him...

Reviews enjoyable romp through some endearing - and not so endearing - characters and themes from the B7 universe. Colin Baker triumphs throughout by being himself, displaying his acting skills through the written word as much as in any other performance. I would say he's one of the best story readers ever. More, please!

Horizon - Blake's 7 Online

With the mighty Colin Baker is on narration duties, it’s no surprise that this is a tale well told. Who else could deliver it? In terms of voices, he populates the universe with Welsh, Irish and all shades in-between. More performed than narrated, it’s clear he had a lot of fun – as I did while listening to it. I’d certainly be up for another novel to see Bayban at the height of his powers too.
